From Fat to Fit: Turn Yourself into a Weapon of Mass Reduction
In my latest book, I'm on a mission to communicate an empowering message: "You and your friends can have fun, get fit and lose weight!"

Dr. Henry S. Lodge, coauthor of the New York Times Best Seller Younger Next Year and Younger Next Year for Women, calls it "a remarkable book about the remarkable person inside each of us. Whenever you decide to take charge of the rest of your life, Carole Carson will be waiting to show you the way."
